7News viewer helps police catch robber

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla_Police have caught a thief who ripped off a Goodwill donation bin last month, thanks to a sharp-eyed 7News viewer.

The theft happened behind the Goodwill store on NW 52nd and Cache Road. 

Police say Richard Carnahan broke the locks on the bins and then piled the stuff into his truck. The theft was caught on surveillance cameras, and when we showed the footage on our newscasts, a viewer recognized Carnahan and called police.

Goodwill officials say this was actually the second time their cameras had caught Carnahan raiding their bins. The first theft happened just a few weeks earlier. 

If convicted of the charge of second-degree burglary, Carnahan faces up to seven years in prison.
